    That gives me an idea for an advert for Torn.

    "Come to Torn, where even the most gullible people can earn 150 million."

    Heisenberg [1574771]

    This makes no sense. A gullible person would lose the cash not earn it. Gullible is not a good trait, the op is gullible the scammers are opportunists.
    Yes, OP is gullible, and he made the 150m before he lost it.

    not being unkind to anyone but if u are gullible to scams then maybe u should try and wise up first

    look at how many enemies they have
    if in doubt check em out by asking other players
    again if in doubt stay the f*** away from em as it is obviously a scam
    and dont buy what u dont need simplez

    Impersonating staff or torn bots/npc's and making up missions is against the rules. Report the mails.

    Why is it against the rules to give someone a mission?

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

    If you do it as Anonymous you're impersonating staff. It happens and the players get warnings and bans.

    But you aren't saying you are staff

    You should be banned simply because your asking for verification from staff or from fluffy from staff said so, to help you use this method to scam people, damn you even admit you want to scam others with this method, very low.

    This was a good scam. I think I would have fell for it seeing the ID was Anonymous [9]. Did you report it to staff? What did they do?

    If sending anonymous mail is impersonating staff and impersonating staff is against the rules then why is anonymous mail an education perk? O.o

    That comprises this and those, definitely.

    That's not what I said. It's making up missions that can get you in trouble.

    I think "mission" needs to be defined.

    That's not what I said. It's making up missions that can get you in trouble.
    It was never said it was a mission, and it was a simple "give us money, and we'll increase it" scam - pretty ordinary.
    The sticking point is what, that they used the "anonymous send" option? That's a feature which has clearly been given to a lot of players - it's earned through an education course! They didn't claim to be Anonymous, OP chose to infer from it that they were (which shows OP is naive, and/or the tutorials didn't train him well enough)

    Test it out, all I'm saying is I've seen people warned (threatened with fed) for sending Anonymous mails and pretending to be an official mission or game, ones telling people you need to send this or buy that or attack these people are what can get you into trouble. So be careful with your wording, that what I'm saying. People probably get away with it most of the time, it needs people to report it before it will come to Admins attention.

    This logic bugs me. "If in doubt..." assumes that I know enough to doubt the claims. It seems from the OP's post that they might have had some doubt so it could apply, but that is not always the case when people use this.
